Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Located in Fantasma Magic ("the City’s premier magic store"), the Houdini Museum of New York is dedicated to the legendary career of escape artist Harry Houdini (1874–1926), who astounded early-20th audiences with stunts such as freeing himself from chains—even while upside down in a tank of water. The museums exhibits memorabilia, films and props associated with his daring feats, including posters, handcuffs and other forms of constraints, as well as an animatronic Houdini figure who wriggles out of a straitjacket while dangling from the ceiling.
